Nice venue, friendly team, excellent food, exceptional view from the rooms and diner room. Get ready for more than 100 steps when you move in and out (it keeps you in good shape). It is easy to access from Johannesburg, I recommend this place if you don't have time for a long SA trip.

This was our first visit to Africa and we are immensely impressed by everything about this lodge - the facilities, the privacy, the staff, the game drives, the food. Our guide Shayne was a treasure trove of knowledge about so much to do with the animals and the park. We would return in a flash, and can highly recommend this...

I cant remember her name it has been ages but safari guide was so experienced. She was over 40 years old was specialist in elephants. She made really special this safari trip. The rooms are so well designed. The chandeliers and some days they did surprise with organising dinner in our room. I can't find much fault.

The most amazing holiday we have ever experienced. Excellent service, food, rooms overlooking the waterhole, outstanding staff. Fantastic guides, Jill, Shawn and Gerrard. Close enough to the animals you think you could touch them. Right up there as the best place in the world to stay. Thank you Tshukudu for the experience of a lifetime. We will be back.
